I walk in honor of my Mom and my friend Mykah. These two women inspire me every day! They have faced this disease with such grace, strength, and humility. While my Mom has conquered it so far, Mykah’s continuing battle demonstrates her passion for life and her hope.
I am also walking for the many others who are impacted by breast cancer, including my parents’ cousins Nancy and Joan, my Mom’s childhood friends Linda and Diane, our Waco friends Ellen and Barbara, Mykah’s mom Lila, Mom’s Windsor friends Susie and Kate, and the many others that Mom and Mykah have met through the course of their treatments.
Some quick facts about me… I live in Chicago, but my family all resides on the east coast. I have the most fabulous puppy in the world, Henry – he is such a joy! I left my consulting career after 16 years in 2006 and opened my own shop, selling art and high-quality artisan crafts, in 2008. In 2011, I expanded my business, purchasing another local independent retailer and combining operations under the Fixture (http://www.shopfixture.com/) name. Fixture, Henry, friends, family, and walking are my passions!
I walked DC in 2010 and ATL in 2011… In 2012, I will be crewing Chicago (http://www.the3day.org/site/TR/2012/ChicagoEvent2012?px=4977908&pg=personal&fr_id=1762). Let’s kick cancer to the curb!
